even though the government said it will not allow its territory to be used to launch attacks against syria. but syrians state media has accuseded the jordanian government in participating in what is called a u.s.-led aggression. a man recently hosted a meeting of countries likely to take part in any military intervention. >> translator: >> things can be resolved without a military strike because it will have consequences the arab the people and syria's neighbors don't need. >> reporter: and syria's foreign minister said the country hasn't attacked jordan in the past two and a half years and it would be a shame if that had to change. a divided arab league have not had the restrictions if the they strike syria. >> translator: >> this is part of america's plan to divide the middle east it started with iraq and now syria and this is an israel's interest. tra*p>> translator: it happenedn iraq and maybe in syria and maybe egypt. >> reporter: the syrian government promised to defend themself against attack. the fire in syria won't stop at its borders. al jazeera, beirut. >> the tinspection

if the syrian government uses chemical weapons to slaughter some of their own citizens, the united states will respond. if the u.s. doesn't respond right now, doesn't he look weak? >> well, i cannot subjectively feel out what other people will feel about the united states. what authority the president of the united states, any president of the united states has to draw a red line that implies that our military is going to be placed in harm's way, i don't think there's constitutional authority to do that and feel compelled without the approval of the congress to carry forth. so rhetoric and losing lives are not nearly as important as making certain that you do the action. so looking weak is not like losing lives, and anybody who has lost people in terms of these wars or intrusions, i know that they would agree with me. >> you served in the military, and you insist that before the u.s. gets involved again in military action around the world, the united states should reinstate the draft. it doesn't look like you've got a whole lot of support for that out there, but you've been raising this i
suggest an imminent u.s. military strike, but rather an update about his decisions on how to proceed in syria. he's been meeting all morning with his top national security advisers at the white house. all this came earlier in the day, the signals were clearly there, even yesterday, officials started arriving at the white house today to go in the situation room, including the vice president, the secretary of defense, chuck hagel, the secretary of state, john kerry. the national security adviser to the president. the top military commanders as well. they've been meeting in the white house. there you see general martin dempsey. the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. there's a tense calm that has fallen across syria as a possible u.s. military strike looms. bill neily has been in the capital city of damascus. we expect in a few minutes to hear from the commander in chief, the president of the united states. i assume they're bracing for some sort of u.s. military strike, whether it happens in a few hours or days. >> yes, they really are. it's definitely tense here. i wouldn't say ther
. they have been gathering evidence at the sites of suspected chemical weapons attacks in the circa capitol. u.s. president has described those attacks as a challenge toe the world. he says he is considering a limited and narrow response. while in europe the german chancellor seen here with rush leader says russia and china's action over syria has weakened the united nations. in an interview with the german newspaper it is very regrettable that russia and china have refused for some time to come to a common position on the syrian conflict. joining us live from the crossing on the lebanon syrian border, first of all, we understand there have been people crossing over that border, tell us about the situation there? >> yes, this is the main border crossing between lebanon and syria. damascus a mere 15 minute drive. you can see behind me, people fleeing syria, but a lot of those cars really have demas. discuss licensed plates. five lot of people we have been talking to believe that the possibility of western strikes is real, and they do belief that damascus strong hold will be targeted. ten people a
in a damascus suburb. let's go to paul who joins us live from washington. paul, what can we expect the president to say? >> reporter: what we've learned is this is not an announcement that an attack on syria is imminent. it's important to emphasize he won't come out and announce an attack is imminent. what he is going to talk about is talk about his decision-making process, what's been going on about the intelligence, about his consultations with congress, perhaps, consultations with allies. again, it's about his decision-making process toward any potential action in syria. >> so basically i guess it's safe to say what we heard yesterday from secretary of state kerry was a setup to what we'll hear from the president today? >> reporter: that's right. this announcement came out about an hour ago, so after we heard from the secretary of state kerry yesterday very forceful remarks followed not long after by the president. we were not expecting to hear again from the pez today. the white house announced they were consulting with republican leaders in the senate and tomorrow with the house, but no men

not just the civil rights movement but it reminds us of who we are as americans. >> what is the dream? was delivered right here. imagine what it was like to be here 50 years ago. hundreds of thousands of people came together to be part of a call to action.there were rumors that coming here would be dangerous. there were fears that nobody would show up. in the end, it was a success because people believed in the power of standing for something. that speech by dr. king was not called, "i have a dream." it was called, normalcy never again. it was about opportunity for all people. >> it was about looking forward to where we need to go as a country, which reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from 50 years ago. he said, the future does not belong to those who are fearful of gold projects and new ideas, but it longs to those -- belongs to those who can blend passion and courage. >> in 1963, i was in the mind of god, as my mother would say. my parents, an interracial couple, knew the importance of the message that was delivered here. their marriage in 1958 was illegal in the state where th
investigating allocations of chemical weapons use. an indian court handed out the first sentence in the trial of a fatal gang rape that enraged the nation. winning the cup after a nailbiting penalty shootout. >> military intervention in syria could be growing closer, as you and inspectors investigating a chemical attack have left the country. washington says it has evidence that the syrian regime was behind the attack. russia had lashed out at washington's plans, and demands that give the u.s. -- the u.s. present its evidence to the u.n. >> the u.n. experts have left syria after completing investigations. the samples they took will be tested in different laboratories. it could take up to two weeks before the results are known. but the united states is unlikely to wait that long. on friday, secretary of state john kerry said that the u.s. had clear evidence that bashar al-assad's regime was responsible for a poison gas on august 21.a he says u.s. intelligence services knew that the missiles used in the attack were in the arsenal of the assad regime, and u.s. troops had been warned to take prec
to fly. >>> we are back at the top of the hour, but up next, president obama offers a warning on the use of chemical weapons, so now is the red line blurred by red ink? "your money" starts now. >> i am christine romans, and this is "your money." the president has drawn a red line, and there is undeniable evidence syria crossed pb line, but is that red line clouded by red ink? the u.s. is a nation of tired after 12 years of fighting, more than 8,000 coalition deaths in iraq and afghanistan, and 50,000 wounded and the most expensive wars ever, $1.4 trillion spent, and the biggest bills have not yet come due. a harvard study finds the final price tag will be 4 to $6 trillion, and that's after the long-term costs, and considering who is taken into account. so much blood and treasure spilled in afghanistan, and how does the shadow of wars cloud the president's ability to act in syria? >> i think if he does decide to strike, a decision to take precision, limited strikes, and beyond that it will inform his choice as they have made clear to make sure that this is a narrow and contained action an
, the president of the united states making it clear he has authorized the use of force in syria, but he's not going to go forward with that execute order until -- until -- congress acts. they're not scheduled to come back from their recess until monday, september 9, then he has the commitment of the democratic and republican leadership in the house and senate. they will take up this resolution that would give the president authority to go ahead and launch a military strike against syria to punish syria for its alleged use of chemical weapons against its own people. so clearly, even though the president has made a decision to go ahead, even though the president has made a decision to go ahead and use military force, he has decided to wait to execute that order until congress comes back, and that could be at least ten days or so from now, if not longer, depending on how long it takes congress to consider such a resolution. and there is by no means a guarantee the president will win that vote in the house of representatives, especially -- likely he probably will win in the senate, not 100%
is weighing on the minds of decision makers. after the initial outrage over last week's use of chemical weapons, leaders in washington and paris are playing it cautious. syrian intervention? not so fast. we will hear what the world's newspapers have been saying in our media watch segment. in it -- newsroom let's say hello to press. >> the rhetoric on syria, going down a notch, the solution, they say, the goal for a military response. david cameron makes his legal and moral case in the strong opposition against the united nations been unthinkable. one of the most wanted people in india has been arrested. arrested in connection with a series of deadly bombings. >> we start with syria and the united nations council reconvening, coming back from an immediate response. on the ground chemical experts have been at work in damascus and have been called back. washington, london, and paris continued to mull their options. they have promised the country would defend itself against serious aggression. >> on the ground and in the suburbs, recent footage showed a team of weapons inspectors. the un se
's you see and feel the grand masters. >>> russia's president has criticized the u.s. threat of strikes against syria. vladimir putin says the allegation is utter nonsense. he said using military force against it would be unacceptable and violate international law. >> common sense speaks for itself. the syrian government forces are advancing. in some region options, they have circled the rebels. giving a card to those who call for intervention is utterly nonsense. it does not fit any logic. i am convinced it is just a provocation by those who want to pull other countries into the syrian conflict, who want to gain support from powerful international players. first of all, the united states. >> all 13 united nation's weapons inspectors left syria and drove to beirut. they are due to report to ba ban kee moon who said he is undecided but barack obama said he is considering a limited and narrow response to the alleged chemical weapons use. >> joining us now from mosanar crossing, there must be great concern now about the regional fallout from any u.s. attack. >> reporter: well, definitely.
joining us. i'm don lemon. we're continuing our special coverage of the syria crisis. you're watching cnn live. you saw the president today. president obama transforming syria's civil war transforming it into a tdomestic issue and putting his own credibility on the line. he will seek congressional authorization. >> that's why i've made a second decision. i will seek authorization for the use of force from the american people's representatives in congress. for the last several days we've heard from members of congress who want their voices to be heard. i absolutely agree. >> the president's decision has opened a whole new conversation here in the u.s. over what to do about syria's civil war. support and opposition for the president's call to action crosses all political lines. members of both parties have lined up in support but vocal opposition is strong. >> i'm troubled by the justi justifications the obama administration has put forth so far. much of their discussion has concerned what they describe as international norms and they have suggested that the u.s. military sh
of skepticism of american public. >> it's important for us to recognize that over a thousand people are killed including hundreds of innocent children through the use of a weapon that 98% or 99% of humanity says should not be used even in war and there is no action then we're sending a signal that international norm doesn't mean much. any military action with boots on the ground. >> we know where the rockets were launched from. and at what time. we know where they landed and when. we know rockets came only from regime-controlled areas and went only to opposition-controlled or contested neighborhoods. >> the administration released a map to go along with that charge with 12 co 12 contested attack. >> among the o allegations, 1429 woman people were killed including 426 children. a stream of spel of intelligencs some leading up to the attack. >> so the primary question is no longer what do we know. the question is what do we collectively, what are we in the world going to do about it. >> concern about revealing sources restrict how much they can say. one thing not alleged in the report said assad
is waiting to see how the u.s. and its allies will respond to last week's chemical attacks. here are the latest headlines we are watching. senior u.s. officials will hold conference calls with senators this afternoon. return vladimirussian presidentn calls the accusations nonsense. it seems that the response is a military response. if that is the case what have you learned about the military capability of the u.s.? >> reporter: as you mentioned there are u.s. warships, there are six, a half dozen. five of them are guided missiles destroyers and armed with tomahawk missiles. there is now a marine troop carrier with hundreds of marines in the areas a support role. the president emphasized there would be no boots on the ground in the event of any attack. the marines troop carrier is there just as a precautionary measure. >> what role does it seem that ourallies will play in this? >> reporter: right now so far the only majorrall major rally g to support is france. they have short range missiles able to strike syria in the event of any attack. >> it seems at this point the administrat
national security. it risks making a mochrie of the global prohibition of the use of chemical weapons. it endangers our friends and partners along syria's borders, including israel, jordan, turkey, lebanon and iraq. it could lead to escalating use of chemical weapons. or their proliferation to terrorist groups who would do our people harm. in a world with many dangers, this menace must be confronted. after careful deliberation, i have decided that the united states should take military action against syrian regime targets. this will not be an open ended intervention. we would not put boots on the ground. instead, our action would be designed to be limited in duration and scope. but i'm confident we can hold the assad regime accountable for their use of chemical weapons. deter this kind of behavior, and degrade their capacity to carry it out. >> the president saying he will seek a congressional authorization of force. making that announcement from the rose garden today, this coming hours after united nations inspectors left syria, arriving in the netherlands today after spending severa
established international laws against the use of chemical weapons by further threatening friends and allies of ours in the region like israel and turkey and jordan. and it increases the risk that chemical weapons will be used in the future and fall into the hands of terrorists who might use them against us. so, i have said before and i meant what i said, that the world has an obligation to make sure that we maintain the norm against the use of chemical weapons. now, i have not made a final decision about various actions that might be taken to help enforce that. >> joining us now live from the region with the latest is leyland. >> tucker, obviously, this entire region is watching intently. there are a lot of scenarios where a u.s. strike could certainly spark a regional war. front page on one of the israeli newspapers probably says it the best. tense waiting and these folks are all lining up for their gas masks. there were thousands of people out in the streets yesterday lining up for their gas masks, all over israel. some got them. some did not. obviously, a long weekend and perhaps a scary
so much for being with us tonight. i'm laura rothman sitting in for lou dobbs. president obama spoke with thousands of marchers on the national mall exactly 50 years to the day after martin luther king jr. delivered his i have a dream speech. >> to dismiss, the mag nigh tuesday of this progress, to suggest as some suggest that little has changed. that is the courage and the sacrifice of those who paid the price to march in those years. but we wouldn't dishonor those heroes as well, to suggest that the work of this nation is somehow complete. >> president obama also calling on americans to address the great unfinished business of economic opportunity. joining me now is angela mccullian. welcome to both of you. >> thank you for have having us. >> your impressions? >> 50 years ago, god spoke to america through a man. the baton has been passed to a new generation. not just a man, but a new generation and challenge all of us to do something to get back to a dream, to push past being democrat or republican, red state, blue state, but we're all americans and there was a message for america
